Madrid, July 18, 2023.
Peruvian gastronomy is in fashion, and it has been recently recognized as such. The Central restaurant by chefs Virgilio Martínez and Pía León from the capital of Peru in Lima has been awarded as the best restaurant in the world.
But, why is the gastronomy of Peru so rich? Undoubtedly, one of the reasons is its biodiversity. The land of the Incas has the privilege of having 75% of the world's ecosystems. There are about 3,000 types of potatoes, more than 50 species of corn, some 18 breeds of quinoa and about 25 varieties of pre-Hispanic chili peppers, including the rocoto, more than 5,000 years old.
Another reason that makes Peruvian food so special is its ethnic diversity: the traditions of Arab, African, Chinese, Italian and Japanese immigrants were incorporated into traditional indigenous food and also into Spanish food, which arrived with the conquistadors. This process of blending ingredients and techniques from the past with modernity shaped Peruvian food today. However, in the midst of this multiculturalism, experts agree that the base ingredients of most preparations have always been the same: onion, garlic, lemon and different types of chili.
In Madrid, located at Calle Quintana No. 30, next to the Temple of Debod, is Pituca, one of the best-rated restaurants on TripAdvisor of all Peruvian restaurants in Madrid and which now, on the occasion of its anniversary, has set out to publicize its best gastronomic proposals, inviting half of Madrid with a fantastic 2-for-1 promotion on its main dishes, dishes from Sunday night to Friday at noon during the month of July.
Peruvian gastronomy is one of the few cuisines recognized by UNESCO as Intangible Heritage of Humanity, and the name of Pituca is synonymous with an elegant woman, with style and class that sets trends, like her Peruvian cuisine, with authentic grills on the grill that make her charcoal dishes a special touch and different from the rest of the Peruvian restaurants in Madrid.
The star dishes that can be found in Pituca are: ceviche, tiradito, ají de gallina, Lima cause, picantón chicken, anticuchos, chaufa rice, salted loin and huancaína-style noodles, and what to say about their Peruvian food combos, which have become a gastronomic trend in Madrid. Now, on the occasion of their second anniversary, they want to publicize this fantastic 2x1 promotion
